Find a home! – Enhancing the transparency and accessibility of the social housing allotment process
Period of implementation: March 2015 – March 2016
The Centre for Urban and Territorial Development (CDUT) and the Romanian Center for European Policies are implementing the project “Find a home! – Enhancing the transparency and accessibility of the social housing allotment process” from March 2015 until March 2016.
The project deals with the issue of social housing and the process of granting them, aiming to increase transparency and accessibility of the entire circuit of policies and procedures for granting social housing. The project will provide an overview and a comparative look on the challenges and vulnerabilities encountered at the Bucharest municipality level, concluding itself into a series of recommendations and proposals. Furthermore, the project will try to bring citizens – potential beneficiaries of social housing system – closer to it, facilitating transparency and access to granting procedures.
The project aims at:
1. Evaluating the local policies regarding social housing in the 6 districts of Bucharest.
2. Increasing transparency of the allocation of social housing by developing a pilot instrument at the Bucharest Municipality level and the establishment of a network with the purpose of enabling citizens and all stakeholders to have an easy and interactive access to data related to the process.
3. Formulating and promoting a series of recommendations and proposals on housing policies for each district.
4. Monitoring the changes and the development of a warning mechanism for a period of 6 months.
The Project “Find a home! – Enhancing the transparency and accessibility of the social housing allotment process” is financed by EEA grants, 2009-2014 Grants, within NGO Fund in Romania.
